The incredible AEC Regent III Fire Engine
The incredible AEC Regent III Fire Engine
A technical marvel, born of the BlitzBlitzed by Nazi bombs during WWII, Britain was a nation in flames. It was a time when the fire service truly came into its own. From the early 1950s we saw a spate of revolutionary new fire engines, design and technical marvels born of the Blitz and drawing on those dark days for inspiration and innovation. And of that new generation of postwar fire engines there was none finer than the beautiful AEC Regent III. That’s why we at Atlas Editions have created this incredible 1:76 scale die‑cast metal replica of the most iconic fire engine of all time – just for you! Just look at the lovely sweeping lines, the old-fashioned bells – you could certainly hear those coming! – and the evocative turntable ladders and London Fire Brigade livery. An absolute stunner. We’ve even added real replica chrome taps and valves. What attention to detail!

An incredible Fire Engine model and an unbeatable offerOnce you receive your AEC Regent III model and have admired its superb attention to detail, there’s no doubt you’ll want to see the next exclusive fire engine we have created for you. I’m sure you’ll agree there’s no contest: it has to be the much-loved Green Goddess.
There’s so much that sets this unique vehicle apart from all other fire engines. There’s that lovely green colouring, of course. Then there’s the little-known fact that the Bedford RLHZ, to give the Green Goddess its official name, was created at the height of the Cold War not so much to put out fires as to bring much-needed drinking water to isolated communities in the wake of a Soviet nuclear attack. Bet you never knew that! The Green Goddess is easily one of the most famous vehicles in all fire engine history.
This superb replica of an historically-important vehicle will also arrive on your doorstep with two great FREE gifts: a fascinating ‘The Story of the Fire Service’ DVD, crammed with rare archive footage, and a Discount Voucher saving you £5 on the price of your model. That’s right, the normal price is £14.99, but you pay just £9.99, plus £4.99 p&p!
Get more great models – and more FREE gifts!It doesn’t stop there. The great offers just keep coming. Accept the Green Goddess and the following month we will send to you for just £14.99 (plus £3.49 p&p) the classic 1937 Leyland TLM fire engine model, together with a FREE, specially-commissioned pin badge worth £6.99 bearing the crest of the London County Council, a proud symbol once sported by all London fire engines – including your Leyland TLM model. Introduced in the late 30s by Leyland – surely one of the most evocative names in British motor manufacturing history – many TLMs were still in use through to the 1960s!
Just four short weeks after receiving your Leyland TLM we will then deliver to you the crowning glory – the Dennis F12. Perhaps the only serious rival to the AEC Regent III as the greatest fire engine of all time, the F12 from 1950 boasted an 8-cylinder Rolls-Royce engine that delivered amazing speed and performance. It looked stunning, too, as you’ll see from the lovingly-crafted model you will receive from us for just £14.99 (plus £3.49 p&p), along with a superb set of silver-plated fire engine cufflinks. Normally worth £7.99, to you, they're FREE!
It’s an incredible offer – and you don’t even have to send any money now. There’s no commitment – ever – and you only pay for the models you decide to keep. If you return your model or cancel your order within 10 days you will owe us nothing! All subsequent issues are £14.99 plus £3.49 p&p.
A world class tribute to the heroic fire serviceThere’s something about a fire engine in full flow that’s impossible to ignore – and not just because of the flashing lights and wailing sirens! It’s what they stand for that really stirs the spirit. You just know that when a fully-crewed engine whizzes by on a ‘shout’ that these heroic men and women are bravely risking life and limb to protect the public.
That’s why in tribute we at Atlas have created this stunning collection of the most iconic fire engines of all time. Our main focus is on that ‘golden age’ in the middle decades of the 20th century, an era when technical innovation and incredible styling went hand in hand.
In our modern era of high-tech emergency vehicles equipped with the latest safety gear and gadgets, it’s easy to forget how dangerous being a fireman or woman can be – and the further back in time you go the riskier it was. Imagine yourself in the back of an AEC Regent III or a Dennis F12, preparing to tackle a raging inferno or major transport disaster. Pretty hard to do, isn’t it? What’s easier to recognize is that the nation’s fire crews, then and now, are heroes all, and our lovingly-crafted replica models celebrate that bravery and commitment in style!
